Thailand Adventures

I love going to new countries, experiencing different cultures and foods. I had never been to Asia before and picked Thailand as my first visit to the continent since I had heard so much about it. Plus I love Thai food and my husband has family there that we could go and visit.

Our first stop was Bangkok, where we stayed at the Ramada Plaza Riverside. We spent 2 days exploring the city in 32 degree heat. It was a really hectic start, lots of traffic and so many people. We visited China Town, The Grand Palace, the National museum and a few temples and markets.

From Bangkok we flew to Phuket and spent 4 nights at the Mandarava Resort and Spa, a 5 star resort  near Karon beach which was absolutely amazing. Phuket was the highlight for me, it was so peaceful, amazing sites and the food was even better than I expected. We went on a site seeing tour and  visited Wat Chalong (a temple) and then the Big Buddha.

Another highlight was the day trip to Phi Phi Islands, unfortunately it did rain most of that day but it was still beautiful to see.

The final stop on our Thailand adventure was a 2 hour drive from Phuket to a small town call Khao Lak. We checked into another resort called Moracea Khao Lak Resort. Each place we visited was so different, in Khao Lak it felt like we were in the middle of a jungle with a private beach it was the ideal place to relax after all the site seeing and exploring we had done.

    • I loved it, it’s such a beautiful place. The Thai people were very friendly and welcoming. But in Bangkok we did find some of the other Asian tourists were staring a lot and trying to take photos of us
